Every hospital user group has the opportunity to set up certain aspects of tracker2 to make it specific to the work of that hospital. One of the first duties is to create in Settings under Admin users a list of those who have admin access to the system. This should be followed by a visit to System tables, also under settings to populate the various tables such as (Locations, Users, Grades, Funding Sources, Hospitals etc.). Once these two tasks have been undertaken the third is to populate the database with applicants. This can be done either by importing the data from a previous Tracker database or, in the case of a new Hospital Trust using the programme, by populating the database as and when applications are made.
